Sarawak Report wants to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed with amazing generosity and support towards financing our defence of the legal action brought by the PAS Islamic Party President, Hadi Awang, who has sued Sarawak Report for saying that many believe that the new apparent alliance between PAS and UMNO owes considerably to Najib directing funds into the upper echelons of his party.
As the evidence accumulates we are standing firm against his denial of our right to report this matter, so that he can make his case before a British court, despite the months of villification, intimidation and overt government backing that has been designed to pressure and intimidate this site and our witnesses.
We need your support to help meet the bills created by Hadi’s decision to fight this costly legal action and we are, thanks to that support, powering towards our target with a third of the money raised within just four days of our 3o day window. Please pass this message and this link on to your friends and ask them to match your own wonderful contributions.
Also, nightbirds can join us on Saturday evening London time for the live stream of the panel discussion “Is Democracy in Danger?” – alternatively later on youtube, courtesy of the Monsoon Bookclub. Watch their space!
